THE UNIVERSE WANTS TO PLAY. Pity the educated cynics who refuse to
enjoy the fun, choosing instead to remain faithful to their numb logical
THE UNIVERSE WANTS TO PLAY. Mourn for the humorless devotees who
refuse to join in the raucous unpredictable game so that they might feed
their spiritual greed, pretzeled up motionless on prayer mats with the

PRONOIAC MAGIC is the daily cultivation of playfully altered states of
awareness for the purpose of accomplishing practical miracles.
PRONOIAC MAGIC begins with your hunger for ingenious beauty and ever-
fresh truth. It thrives and ripens as you discover that everything you
behold is bursting with conscious intelligence.
PRONOIAC MAGIC is not about reading auras or divining past lives. It's not

PRONOIAC MAGIC: Let it spread. May it multiply. Unleash it and unmask it
-- not just in exotic once-in-a-blue-moon dreams, but in the throb of the
simple dramas you live from day to day.
Everything in the universe is alive with playful intelligence and wants to
improvise with us.
